BEAST FROM THE EAST
Please be very careful in the next coming days as the beast from the east and storm Emma approach. We ask you to make sure all your fur babies are kept indoors or insulated shelter, and that water is checked regularly as the extreme drop in temperature will freeze it. Make sure fodder is in constant supply and that they have nice warm beds to lay down in. Be safe everyone and stay indoors.
Please do not hesitate to give us a call if you see a Horse/Donkey in distress

We’ve had another busy week at HHO but a journey has finally come to an end for another 10 of Ireland’s Forgotten
Last Friday we packed little suitcases and waved goodbye, to Twinkle, Shannon, Sparky, Rubble, Eddie, Menthos, Spirit, Angelina as well as Forgotten Dory and Forgotten Maeve.
We’re incredibly proud to have had a small part to play in their journey home, to be but a stepping stone for them, between their past and their new families.
They reached their new families over the past few days in Germany and Austria and we couldn’t be prouder of our little army taking on Europe. Each one with a tragic story of their own, cast aside in favor of a new life.
Good luck our little pets and we’ll be watching as always
THANK YOU TO OUR GERMAN FOLLOWERS
As many of you are aware HHO run an extremely successful European Rehoming Programme for Ireland’s unwanted, forgotten, abandoned and abused equines. Well, some of our European supporters have read of the fodder crisis in Ireland and the rising costs of hay and haylage. It’s creeping higher than it has been in years.
After us posting several times about struggling to source and indeed pay for fodder for our 150 plus ponies, Richy took it upon herself to fundraise, order and organize delivery of a full lorry load of Haylage for the HHO ponies. The reality is we use six to seven bales a day, some weeks more due to our external feeding programme, almost a lorry load a week, this lorry load cost €2000 and will last the ponies hopefully 9-10 days, you can only imagine the pressure we feel to keep fodder stocked. €2000 euro every 10 days…. so you can only imagine how excited and grateful we were to Richy for organizing and fundraising this load.
Thank you so much to everyone who supported Richy’s campaign, we are totally overwhelmed by your support. Such practical and desperately needed help and to have Richy and friends fly from Germany to oversee the delivery has been amazing. We always, always, always need projects like this so if you would like to really help why not consider doing the same thing??
